One of the farm owners is a member here and post invites and request for work campers every once in a while.

We have been members of harvest hosts for over a year now and have used it many times every time it has been a great experience. You must know that it is strictly "dry" camping. The only down side is it hasn't been all that cheap for us but that is because I buy way more wine than I sould.

Second 'bennu36' posts! We just stayed at 2 Harvest Hosts Wineries in New Mexico. The 'complimentary' overnight turned into buying lots of wine. My favorite is the 'Hatch Red Chili' from St. Clair Winery south of Deming.

Self control is the key to affordable free camping.

If I had and self-control it is doubtful I would have bought an interstate in the first place

We have also enjoyed staying with winery hosts.
One host was very friendly and we had a wonderful time chatting while she kept pouring the samples to the point that when we finally settled up with our purchases I could barely get back to the 'stream.

Kinda like staying at Walmart...you park, go in, buy bananas, toilet paper and toothpaste. At the winery, you park and go in and buy wine. Hmmmm, think I know which one I want to park at.

For those that are members, how is the coverage on the east coast? Are there a lot of options?

Thanks. That sounds like enough to warrant a try.
